Seneca Lake is one of the largest of the Finger Lakes Region in the midwestern part of New York. Its long and skinny and I took advantage of the beautiful views for painting waterscapes. However, like every plein air festival I’ve ever been in, we experienced our fair share of crummy weather at the Seneca Lake Plein Air Festival. The day I painted the piece above, there was nonstop rain and drizzle. We don’t have the luxury of sitting the day out, so I combed the area looking for a winery that would let me set up indoors to paint their vineyard.

Asking permission to paint on a business or home site used to terrify me. It seemed so intrusive. But over the years I’ve found that people love the idea of an artist painting their view and enjoy checking out the progress. Very few people have ever turned my polite request down. But a couple have

The waterscape below was done from a small yacht club (again, with permission) on a slightly sunnier morning. This piece was a challenge because the boats were constantly spinning around their anchors. I’d have to work on another area of the painting until the boats moved back into the position I wanted. I tell ya. It’s always somethin.

My last plein air festival of the season in the beautiful Finger Lakes Region! I stayed with the couple who hosted me at last year’s event. They’ve become wonderful friends that I look forward to visiting every time I am in the area.

Rich farmland surrounds the lake and sooooo reminds me of my Michigan roots. I spent the first couple of days capturing the very same scenes I paint when I’m home. I’ve found more and more that I am drawn to “what I know”, the farm views that give me joy in my surroundings every single day.

Both of these paintings are available at:

I painted this piece, “Washtenaw Gold,” en plein air (near Textile Road in Saline) before the leaves changed color, but after the fields had turned gold. For me, that’s the absolute best time for autumn painting. I get a bit overwhelmed when the trees have exploded in psychedelic hues, but I love the vibrant color of September.

This painting and many others are currently available at WSG Gallery‘s Holiday Sale. The walls are filled with small and large gems specially priced to be snatched up by savvy art lovers. Stop by our Artist Reception on Friday night during Midnight Madness in Downtown Ann Arbor. There will be a fun crowd milling around!

Gratitude

I am soooo grateful this holiday season. I’ve had WAY more than my fair share of art awards, sales, commissions and amazing experiences. Every day I ponder the fact that I have this wonderful new career in painting, the thing I’ve wanted to do all my life. What luck, what joy.

To thank all my current (and future!) clients and friends, I’ll be offering any of the paintings in my studio at 10% off through the end of this year. (In January, as usual, my prices will increase 5-10% across the board.) So if you are looking for that special gift for a loved one or yourself, check out my website at www.jillwagnerart.com, email me or call. Together, we’ll find something just perfect! Below are a only few of the many large and small pieces available. I also have giclee paper or canvas prints available here.

And thank you for going on this journey with me!!
